Re: eva4400 extend vdisk

Hi,
if it is a basic disk type, Windows will see the file system with the original size and the unallocated part of the extension. You can extend the file system then via the diskpart online on the standalone Windows host...
the pain is one part of the reality

Re: eva4400 extend vdisk

If it is a system partition then you will have to use software like Acronis Disk Director to resize the disk and then reboot before the OS will see the different size.

If it's just a logical partition then diskpart will do the job.
